Refugee Services of Texas is permanently closing its Dallas office as well as all other offices due to a reported budget crisis.
The organization serviced refugees and immigrants with resettlement and resources at locations across Texas for 45 years. In May, they announced that almost half of staff would face layoffs as it closed Fort Worth and Houston offices, according to KXAN.
As a result of the closures, which are set to go into effect in July, Refugee Services of Texas has stopped accepting refugee referrals. Those clients will be redirected to other resettlement agencies.
The center was the largest resettlement agency in Texas and serviced more than 4,700 people in the past 18 months, a record in its 45 years.
The Dallas office was located in Lake Highlands at 11880 Greenville Ave Suite 130.
